For Shreyas Iyer, the man who led Delhi Capitals to the 2020 IPL final, “the hunger (to perform) has grown and the appetite (for runs) keeps increasing every match you play.”

Back in the mix after missing the first part of the season due to injury, Shreyas finished the job for DC with a six in its eight-wicket triumph over Sunrisers Hyderabad on Wednesday.

Addressing mediapersons following his unbeaten 41-ball 47 on Wednesday, Shreyas said, “It’s a really good feeling. I wanted to be positive when I went in to bat and I wanted to back my instincts. I looked to bat till the end and finish the game. I gave myself some time in the middle and after a while, I was able to pick the lengths of the deliveries.”

Asked about how he coped with injury, he said: “I have a very close-knit family and friends and they never made me feel I was going through an injury. At first it was really difficult for me to adapt to the fact that I was injured. But family and friends kept me busy and in a positive frame of mind.”

As he gained strength during rehab his confidence that he could come back positive and strong grew, Shreyas said.

He loves to perform under pressure. “I feel, the pressure-situation brings the best out of me. Even today, when I walked in, there was a bit of pressure. I want to be in that kind of situation and perform.”
